BBC Symphony Orchestra: Elgar Choral Works
Elgar's oratorio The Apostles is all-too-rarely presented: it contains some of Elgar's most inspired writing, particularly in its dramatic portrayal of Judas, the inclusion of a shofar at dawn and a memorably exalted ending. This is a fine opportunity to hear it with an exceptional cast: Jacques Imbrailo, Paul Groves and Brindley Sherratt, who have recently recorded it to great acclaim, are joined by Sarah Connolly, Nicole Cabell and Gerald Finley under the baton of Conductor Laureate, Sir Andrew Davis.
